    while i agree, i don't think "overrated" quite does it...i can't think of a better word though.

    i thought of a few:

    overpaid
    selfish
    clubhouse-cancer
    defensive liability
    base-clogger
    ego-maniac
    and yes...very overrated.

    take another right fielder...say vladimir guerrero. vlady is 3 times the player sosa is.

    I like Sosa personality wise but his skills have gone to sh*t. I bet Oswald gets more hits today than he does.

    you're right...what was i thinking!

    the best was after he got caught corking his bat, he blames the media. the league cracks down and starts testing for steroids and sosa's numbers go to sh*t...coincidence? God only knows how many homeruns he hit illegally.

    he will be in the hall of fame someday though...a much, much better player and citizen than pete rose.
